Tenosynovectomy How is it performed?

Posted by Jason Pollizzi on 8/08/04 at 06:12 (157191)

Hello,

I am interested in knowing how a physcian performs a tenosynovectomy on tendons for tendonitis? Will this cause more infllmartion to the area?

Thank you

Jason:
The doc basically strips the dieseased tissue from around the tendon. If the tendon is stripped bare, then adhesions can form afterwards. Agressive PT may be needed to prevent that.
